The non-sense

Sometimes we wonder when the citizens of
America got so complacent. We will list
some things that should have got people
worked up, and didn’t.

Democrat, Republican, Progressive,
Conservative, or Independent these facts
and figure should get your dander up.

One word, Solyndra. With a $733 billion
factory complete with spa-like showers,
robots that whistled Disney tunes, and
fancy glass-walled conference rooms.

One facilities manager at Solyndra
compared the plant to the Taj Mahal. And
the company still owes the taxpayers
billions.

The GSA conference in Las Vegas
that cost taxpayers over $800,000. And
only 300 people attended!

Then the GSA spent $330,000 to relocate
one employee from Denver to Hawaii.

The perks of Obamacare:

Like the city of Nashville getting $7.5
million to provide free pet spaying and
neutering.

The New York Department of Health getting
$3 million to lobby for a soda tax initiative.

Boston got $1 million for urban gardening.
And the list goes on.

Congress hasn’t had a budget in 3 years, next
year will bring a huge tax increase if nothing
is done, yet we keep electing the same people
back in to do it to us again.

And the president believes he ‘deserves’
another term? Our children can’t afford it.
Comments are always welcome.

    Just when you think you’ve heard it all….

    Channel 8 this morning is reporting that Davenport has hired a firm to do a study on the ash trees in the City.

    When half do not pay federal taxes, they do not care where the money is spent. Just that they get some of it.

    Why not have the city hire a firm to study the trees? We have people that think the government should have control over our property and they voted this council in.

    Nuckin_Futs,
    It will cost around $120,000 for the study, but it comes out of
    a different fund than the one for emptying trash cans in the
    parks.

    Nitrous55,
    And the number of people not paying taxes is growing. We
    can’t help but think that means before long they will want
    more. If the Emerald Ash bug hits the trees it would cost
    more to cut them all down. Or perhaps give the city time
    to save some of them.

    At one time if a tree was diseased or dead on your land, it was at the property owners expense to have it cut down. If not done in a timely manner, the City would send notice that you had a short time to hire a contractor and have the tree removed. If you didn’t do that then the city would hire someone just like they do with mowing your yard, and then charging you 4 times what a tree service would charge you to do the work.

    Getting a tree nusance letter will be a real pain in the ash.

    anonymous,
    lol, We got rid of the ash tree so we don’t have that worry anymore.
